Applies to

  • ONTAP 9
  • Clustered Data ONTAP
  • Linux kernel 2.6.18 and later versions

Issue

  • A Linux system running kernel 2.6.x identifies the .snapshot directory as a different filesystem, and thus as a different mount point.
  • 'mount' command on the Linux host displays a large number of snapshots mounted and not able to be unmounted.

1.1.1.1:/some_export/cluster/.snapshot/hourly.2015-08-03_0705 on /some-mount/.snapshot/hourly.2015-08-03_0705 type nfs (rw,relatime,vers=3,rsize=32768,wsize=32768,namlen=255,soft,proto=tcp,timeo=600,retrans=2,sec=sys,mountproto=,local_lock=none,addr=10.1.100.101)
